Chinese envoy raises issue over Tibetan activities in Nepal
Phayul[Saturday, April 20, 2013 16:50]
DHARAMSHALA, April 20: The Chinese Ambassador to Nepal, Wu Chuntai, met with Nepal Congress President Sushil Koirala at his residence in Maharajgunj yesterday to raise issues over Tibetan activities in Nepal.

Quoting an aide of Koirala, Nepal.com said, "The meeting dwelt on Nepal's current political scenario, the proposed Constituent Assembly elections and China's concern about the activities of Tibetans in Nepal,"

However, the Nepal Congress President Sushil Koirala said that the government and the parties were working to build the environment for elections as he explained his party's view that activities against the neighboring countries should not be allowed in Nepal.

On February 13, when Tibetans around the globe were commemorating the 100th year of the declaration of the Tibetan Proclamation of Independence by the Great 13th Dalai Lama, a Tibetan monk in Nepal set himself on fire near the holy stupa of Boudhanath in the heart of Nepalese capital city Kathmandu.

Druptse's body was then later declared "unclaimed" and was secretly cremated by Nepalese police at Pashupatinath cremation site in violation of the fundamental Tibetan tradition of funeral prayers and last rites essential for the dead.

In 2011, another Tibetan monk Bhutuk set himself ablaze at the same spot.

Over 20,000 Tibetan refugees live in Nepal and their situation is grim with China's increasing influence on Nepal which denies the Tibetans even freedom to celebrate cultural and religious festivals.
